Explorations of Life and Enlightenment

Welcome!

Blue featherMy name is David “Davidya” Buckland.

This site explores what it means to live life approaching, transitioning, and living in post-personal stages of development; what we often call enlightenment. These stages build on more familiar stages of personal development studied by psychology and biology.

I post articles as they arise, so please subscribe to receive notification of the latest.

This site began in 2007 and contains thousands of articles. During that time, my perspective has grown and I’ve changed how I see and describe our potential unfolding. This evolution continues. You won’t find a list of correct concepts or truths but ways of seeing the spiritual journey, oneself, and the world. Old articles don’t become wrong, I just add other perspectives. Use them to support your journey but don’t confuse a map with the road. Let your direct experience guide you.

And now, the latest blog posts…

Renounce

Adi-Worlds
